ethical reporting that fits and police bribery really aliceville recess plain officers for information has been going on for years but this is a good example of what the police have been doing in the kind of murdoch years they've been using a receipt been leaking they're being paid for telling people when some celebrities have been arrested so actually manipulating the rest of people i mean it's actually a practice that has become in trying to write you as a result of the thing so this would hardly be out of practice if but i don't think it's going to deflect the opinion i mean there are so many m.p.'s now and indeed so much of the british establishment which was so long to murdoch prepared to get to the bottom of this and read out those people who have been corrupted by different levels remember that four years ago police had these bags with i think it was a live one thousand letters about four thousand celebrities and victims of crime and all these other people and they knew they were taking part in this to. these

were just left there i mean it's amazing it's remarkable that it took four years for them to do anything about this and meanwhile senior police officers were wining and dining with members of the murdoch empire they were meeting them for drinks privately one even hired them at a thousand pounds a day to work for him so you know what does this tell us about the relationship between the police and the news corp employees well it's very very serious and if this can happen at the top of the police look at the example that gives the officers there on down the lines now you could well you know can any organization properly examine itself put so much is at stake that if that operation is seen to be corrupted as well i think we've got you know an even bigger problem i think so many people now are watching it including you know members of parliament select committees these are the investigative qualities within the british political system they're all all eyes are on this let alone all the journalists who are looking at what's going on so i think the ramifications of this is so big i mean

a way i suppose one hundred slightly suspicious turn of mind one might think that the police taking this step at this stage. allowing her little wriggle room i shouldn't have to say too much and perhaps it's so we've had three too much about the leaks of the police service in london as well so it's very very interesting timing. for the cruiser that sank in the volga to be a lift of later on monday once the vessel is moved off its side what is one of the operations most difficult stages a chance to put the ship on an even keel resumed after a balancing slane ruptured on sunday the next task is to search the riverbed for fifteen missing victims and then raise the bow twenty meters to the surface investigators and relatives hope that definitive answers can be found as to why the ship sank but recovery crews say the work is complicated because the vessels dogging the silt at the bottom of the volga little gary went down in minutes leaving more than half of the few hundred eighty passengers with no chance to

state department and lost the court here has been struggling with the issue of randomness asking how could the result of the green card lottery not be random even if there had been a computer glitch as the state department claims one of the arguments is that even an error like that could produce a random result and the whole idea behind the green card lottery is that whoever you are whatever you do you can win it but this case very well undermined that perception experts specializing in information technology say the decision of the state department as well as the court that dismissed the case defies simple logic rhonda means that if only records if all the tracks are on your cd player where you can. you may get tracks three four and five and track twelve. the state department has brought up intricate technical arguments to explain the blunder but thousands of its victims say they have the feeling that someone has gambled with
